I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss of Ronnie. It sounds as if he had a great life and he will be missed. I plan the class reunions and I could never find him to invite him. However it sounds like he had a great life. I pray you have peace as your grieve for him. Peggy Vann Lindsey
I’m fortunate to have called Ronnie my friend for many years, but sadly life changes caused us to loose contact with he and Marsha over the past 20 years. But, what I always remember is Ronnie’s great sense of humor. We traveled many miles together on motorcycles and on one particular trip up the east coast, he was in particularly rare form. We had loaded our motorcycles on to an overnight ferry from Bar Harbor Maine to Yarmouth Nova Scotia. When we unloaded in Yarmouth and went to customs, Ronnie, with a straight face, asked the woman customs agent “When does Disney World open?”. I don’t remember her exact response, but she basically told him he was in Nova Scotia. Ronnie then turned to me and angrily said “You told me we were taking a cruise to Florida”. I’ll miss him.
I was so sorry to hear this. Ronnie and Tommy and my brother, sister and I grew up together in Smyrna. Prayers for the family along with my deepest condolences. Beckie Senter
